Welcome! This section will help orient you to the campus and the tasks you'll need to accomplish early.

Human Resources

At UMass Dartmouth, the HR Home handles all employment-related questions. The office is located on the second floor of the Foster Administration Building, Room 202; phone: 508.999.8060 or x8060 (reception desk). Payroll staff members are located in this area at x8049.

Once you have been hired, you should contact the HR reception desk immediately to make an appointment to discuss benefit options and complete necessary payroll paperwork.

Basic Needs

Before the semester begins, you have some errands to take care of:

Steps for UMass Pass ID Card for New Employee

  1. Employee will first go to Human Resources to complete employment verification
  2. Employee may obtain his or her UMass Pass ID card if all Human Resources paperwork is completed. (CAMPUS ID # must be generated through the system.) If any Human Resources information is pending, you must wait 2 to 3 business days prior to obtaining your UMass Pass ID card.
  3. After the necessary wait time, the new employee will go to the UMass Pass (UMP) Office with photo ID (valid driver's license or passport). UMP will review the system data--if new employee's information is populated in the system, the process will continue.
  4. UMass Pass will verify the status of employee (as active with CAMPUS ID # generated) and will proceed to create the ID card.
  5. Photo will be taken
